Rampant ambition and minds unhinged. Owls shrieking and prophesies foretold. Shakespeare’s Macbeth is seen anew, set in London's historic Bedlam asylum for this groundbreaking production at the Folger. Davenant’s Restoration-era adaptation blends period music performed by Folger Consort with the tragedy of ambition run amok. Featuring Helen Hayes Award-winners Ian Merrill Peakes and Kate Eastwood Norris as the tragically ambitious Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.
